New York Car Accident Leaves Mother With Fatal Injuries

On behalf of Licatesi Law Group, LLP posted in motor vehicle accidents on Thursday, March 22, 2018.

Most people come across other drivers who seem to have no regard for the safety of their fellow travelers or for traffic laws. Someone may drive too fast, weave in and out of traffic, or try to beat red lights in order to save some time. Unfortunately, these actions can easily cause a car accident that has devastating results.

It was recently reported that a crash in New York proved fatal for one person. Apparently, a 44-year-old woman was driving a vehicle with her 16-year-old daughter as a passenger. As they were exiting the interstate, another vehicle cut in front of them, which caused the woman to lose control of her SUV. The vehicle then crashed into an embankment. The other driver did not remain at the scene.

The incident resulted in the woman being partially thrown from the vehicle, and she suffered fatal injuries as a result. Her daughter suffered only minor injuries and was treated at an area hospital. At the time of the report, authorities had not located the driver of the other vehicle, but additional information may become available at a later time as the investigation continues.

The family of the woman killed in this New York car accident may anxiously await news from police regarding the other driver. During that time, they may wish to determine whether they could potentially take legal action against that person, if they wished to do so. Wrongful death claims filed against individuals considered responsible for car accidents can help surviving family seek compensation for damages resulting from these events.
